Arts and culture in brief: the week ahead in Costa Rica
Lebanese dancer, choreographer and former international belly dance champion Estelle Zaghloul will join Costa Rican actors Nancy Banard and Tito Fuentes in “Ishtar: Stories of Women Warriors,” a special one-day-only presentation at Teatro Espressivo in Momentum Pinares, Curridabat, east of downtown San José (Sunday, June 12).
Art meets beach as the first edition of the Tamarindo Art Wave fills the Pacific coast town with 50 painters, sculptors and other artists who – put up in hotels, restaurants and private homes all over town – will each create a new work of art during the festival (Thursday, June 16 – Saturday, June 18).
The Rafael Angel Calderón Guardia Museum in San José showcases the work of painter Efraín Méndez, who takes a nostalgic look back at the visions of childhood in a new exhibit called “La frontera azúl” (through July 2).
If these stormy afternoons and nights have you in the mood for a flick, check out the Costa Rica Center for Cinematic Production’s free films this weekend, ranging from Rolling Stones documentary “Gimme Shelter” to South Korean mystery thriller “Oldboy” (Friday, June 10-Sunday, June 12).
